Finally set up what will likely be the last coffee maker I ever have....

Link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002LAREDS

Near the end of August, I started an experiment to kick caffeine....but not chocolate. :lalala:

To replace coffee, it was either decaf coffee or second+ tea leaves (quick steep and throw first cup out)... For first thing in the morning it was dependent on how many times I had made tea from my current set (or how long they had got left out)....or relying on my coffee maker to automatically brew a pot in the morning.

I was also running low on my good tea from Boca Java...and I'm still getting automatic shipments from Boca Java. And, I had switched my Boca Java shipments to send decaf.

So during the work week, it was mainly decaf in the morning...tea in the evening...and on weekends...tea all day.

But, then it happened...another coffee maker bit the dust...on Monday, September 26th.... After some mourning, I decided to buy a new coffeemaker using Amazon Prime (and one-day shipping) and some Amex points. It arrived September 30th.

I went with a Black & Decker DLX1050B as my last coffee maker.

I still had coffee left when my next auto delivery from Boca Java arrived....this time holiday (halloween) flavors in decaf....and I still hadn't gotten to setting it up.

But, having a moment while making supper, today...I decided it was time to set it up.

As I was setting it up...I decided that this would be the last. Because I now see that Boca Java has tea available, and while there are some good decafs for the occasional consumption, I'm not liking it for regular consumption.... Though for now its easier to have decaf waiting for me when I wake up in the morning, than tea. But, perhaps someday it won't matter which is easier...or something.

Probably a lot of pressure for a Black & Decker coffeemaker....though not surprising, since my original coffee maker...of nearly 16+ years was a Black & Decker SpaceMaker. It could go under cabinet, but I never got around to getting the necessary spacers to make it go under the cabinets of my home in Medicine Hat. And, its simple shape made it work sitting on my counter, with various supplies sitting on top of it. But, the new spacemaker models aren't shaped that way....so when it finally came time to replace it...I had gone with the Mr. Coffee machine for its form, and when that died.... form became less important, so I got the KitchenAid one...and now that its gone, form ceased to be a matter...so I'm back to having a Black & Decker coffeemaker.... for now.... :cool:

Hopefully, Boca Java will come back with my favorite...Green Tea Passion. Though they seem to be doing bagged teas, rather than loose teas.... hmm....

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
